    Regular 6s, not plus btw.
    I've had white apple products and black iPhone products equally, white iPod touch 4g for my 12th birthday, and white iPad for my 13th that I still use to this day, then two iPhone 5c (black bezel obviously) and a Space Grey 6.
    I decided to try Space Grey for the 6 back in March, and I really liked it. I liked how the black bezel would disappear when I used it, and how sleek it looked when the screen was off. (I never used a case bc I loved my iPhones appearance.) But, it sadly fell out of my pocket while upside down at the top of a fair ride on August and I never saw it again.
    I decided to go with Space Grey for the 6s, but then I saw Rose Gold and fell in love. Now, my dad's left me, an extremely indecisive, teenage girl who changes her mind frequently, a week to choose what color to get before he orders it.
    I know it shouldn't be as big a deal as it is, but it's driving me nuts. I love how sleek the Space Grey is, but everyone has it and not many people have white bezel iPhones anymore, and no one I know has Rose Gold (yet). I see a few people with silver/gold iPhone 6 and I just love how pretty, different, and neat the white front is, but I'm scared it will be distracting when watching videos or using it in the dark. Or that it would discolor and look ugly under certain lighting.
    But I don't think I ever notice my white iPad (2nd gen)'s screen when using it. Sorry for long rant btw, just extremely indecisive.


    tl;dr, post what color iPhone 6s you would/did get out of Rose Gold or Space Grey. Also, I noticed a vast majority of males pick space grey, so please post your gender along with your choice lmao.

    space grey is better because the front looks like one whole piece of glass rather than a white border surrounding a black rectangle.

    Go with what you fell in love with. Not what you think is better.

    I went for the Rose Gold this time, coming from a Space Gray iPhone 6. It may be pink in certain lights, but it looks really good 90% of the time. First time having a white bezel as well, and I kinda like it. I feel like it disappears even more than the Space Gray when browsing through iOS because of all the white menus and web pages and so on. The one thing better with Space Gray is when the screen is turned off, I love that "all-black" look.

    My iPhone 5 was white but I opted for the Space Grey this time around. Both have their strengths IMO. The white bezel looks really clean and nice while in apps and browsing but I feel the black bezel looks nicer when the iPhone is off or watching video. I also like how the FaceTime camera, speaker hole and home button almost disappear on the black bezel whereas they stand out on the white.

    I wish Apple would release the color options with a black bezel--then I'd probably do gold or rose gold.

    I wish they'd do more colours with the black front. I'd buy a gold with a black front.

    That blending of screen and bezel when it is off means it has to be space grey for me.

    I prefer anything with a white face, especially considering that there will always be a case on it so nobody's ever going to know unless they look closely. That being said, even though I'm not a fan of Space Gray, I would take it because I know it'll be one of the most available for early shipping.

    I've had space grey iPhone 5s and iPhone 6. Plus an all black iPhone 4. I find I'm enjoying the cheerful bright white face of the Rose gold iPhone 6s Plus. Sometimes staring at that all black slab on my IPhone 6 plus got to me because it was such a big featureless surface. I never minded it on the iPhone 5s but on bigger surfaces I found it oppressive after awhile.

    I love the rich rose gold color. Sometimes it's copper and sometimes it's pinkish. It's never boring. I love the Rose gold ring around the home button.

    I don't think I'll go back to a black bezel iPhone anytime soon unless the nect model leaves no choice. I'm a woman.

    I had a black iPhone 5 and now a silver iPhone 6s. I'm starting to prefer the white bezel. White background and black letter is much more natural for your eyes than the other way around.
    Choosing a light background on a dark iPhone is also too harsh. So go with the rose gold :)

    For me, the antenna lines on the rose gold stand out way too much and distract from the appeal. Looks like the iPhone is wearing a pair of pink y-fronts :)

    It does sort of sound like your heart is set on the Rose Gold, and if that's the case, go for it! But if you are not sure and are looking for a bit of objective data, I found this article to be helpful.

    Can't go wrong with either. My personal preference is Space Gray though. I've never had a white bezel on a product since I started buying Apple products.

    I prefer the white border. To each their own.

    It's the worst one for highlighting the antenna lines that's for sure, followed by the gold.

    I am female and I have the Space Grey, I absolutely love it.

    I like Rose Gold option but ultimately I knew I would be putting mine in a case. That being said, the black face works nicely for me as I personally think it matches more phone cases than the white bezel, opening up my style options.

    I have a space grey one and my wife has the rose gold. She has a clear case to show it off; I have a Spigen wireless charger case which is also space grey.

    My first two iPhones were black - the 1st gen and iPhone 4 (not out of choice), next two were white (iPhone 5 and 6+). This time, I went with the Rose Gold. I don't give a rats behind what anyone thinks.

    Space gray for sure. I owned a silver 5S and wouldn't go back just because of the white faceplates.

    I'm a guy, but I'd get the rose gold.
